  1. The application is divided into two parts. The first part is critical – it assesses whether:

    1. You are a formal member of At-Large - Section 3 – Your current At-Large Affiliation

    2. Your knowledge of ICANN and how it works - Section 4 - ICANN and its Ecosystem. This will expect you to complete a series of compulsory study courses.

  2. You will only qualify to move onto the second part of the application form if you can complete all the questions in the first sections appropriately.

  3. The second part will assess your experience and potential capacity according to a set of criteria that were considered important skills and abilities for our policy leaders in At-Large

    1. These criteria were selected by Leadership Development Team (LDT) subgroups who were made up of members from At-Large who specifically volunteered to contribute to the selection of travellers to ATLAS III in Montreal.

    2. In this final section, you will be asked to provide details of the contribution you have made to At-Large or ICANN to demonstrate your own practical experience, abilities and skills 

      1. Section 6 - Your contributions to At-Large

        1. Your contributions in policy inputs and reviews

        2. Your contributions in Outreach and Engagement for At-Large

      2. Section 7 - Your Skills and Experience

        1. Collaborative, skills in team building

        2. Ability to lead, motivate, inspire and build consensus

    3. This section will be evaluated by the regionally-selected ATLAS III APPLICANT SELECTION COMMITTEE.

  4. IMPORTANT: All applications must be submitted by 23:59 UTC on 31 May 2019 to be considered.


Section 4 of the Application Form (ICANN and its Ecosystem) introduces the expectations of the ATLAS III Program Committee that everyone who is accepted onto the ATLAS III Program will already have full basic knowledge of ICANN and how it works. For this reason, there is a compulsory set of topics that each person must complete in order to be eligible for the invitation to attend. 

There are two types of courses available;

  1. Webinars - which are available in English, French and Spanish. 

  2. ICANN Learn courses - which are only available in English

All information on the required ATLAS III Prep Courses may be found on the Online Training Courses Workspace.

The courses offered in either course program, will cover the same content so that you can choose either of the courses to complete a particular topic. But you MUST complete EACH of the FIVE topics either by attending the Webinars (where your name will be recorded by staff) or doing the appropriate ICANN Learn course (where your name will be recorded automatically by the ICANN Learn system) . 

  • IMPORTANT: The ATLAS III Webinar on Domain Names, the first of the webinars that are required for ATLAS III applicants working in ES and FR, will be held on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 at 21:00 UTC and again on Wednesday, 24 April 2019 at 12:00 UTC.

  • IMPORTANT: Le webinaire ATLAS III sur les noms de domaine, le premier des webinaires requis pour les candidats à l'ATLAS III travaillant en ES et FR, se tiendra le mardi 23 avril 2019 à 21h00 UTC et à nouveau le mercredi 24 avril 2019 à 12h00 UTC.

  • IMPORTANTE: el seminario web de ATLAS III sobre nombres de dominio, el primero de los seminarios que se requieren para los solicitantes de ATLAS III que trabajan en ES y FR, se llevará a cabo el martes 23 de abril de 2019 a las 21:00 UTC y nuevamente el miércoles 24 de abril de 2019 a las 12:00 UTC.

  • There will be notices sent out to At-Large notifying potential applicants about when the courses will be available. or you can click here to get the schedule directly.

  • Completing a webinar course means that you must attend the whole course, and NOT arrive more than 10 minutes after the start of the webinar.  Staff will be monitoring attendance and participation. There will be questions asked at the end of each webinar

  • Completing a course in ICANN Learn is monitored internally - so the program records how much of each course is completed by each learner.

The Webinar Programme

When you are notified about the start of the ATLAS III webinar programme you will be given two chances to view the webinar. The presenters have agreed to offer the webinar twice in order to allow people a time on different sides of the world to take the course.  These are compulsory if you want to complete the courses in French or Spanish. It is important that, as a minimum, you do each of the topics either on the Webinar or the ICANN Learn programs. You can do both if you want to.

2.      GNSO (based on our selection of “Introduction to the GNSO”)

1. Please ensure that the email address you provide in Section 1 is correct.  
After you have submitted your application you will receive an acknowledgement with a full record of your completed application form. The email will also provide you with a link that will enable you to EDIT your form if you want to change anything or to update your course completion section.  You will be able to resubmit your application many times (but please see below)

When you edit your earlier submission, it is important that you proceed through the form and click the SUBMIT button again (on the last page) to make sure your changes have been submitted.

You will not be able to make any changes after the closing date. You will be assessed on the last application form that was submitted.

2. The ATLAS III Programme in Montreal will mainly be in English.

While we are offering French and Spanish translations of the Application Form we would prefer that you please try to answer your questions in English. This is because not all of the members of the ATLAS III Selection Panel will be able to read in French or Spanish (and they may have difficulty translating the text on the scoring matrix).  Most of the answers in Section 1 just require a click of your mouse, but if you qualify to move onto the full application, then this is where you will need to be able to explain what skills and experience you have.

We would recommend that you ask a friend or one of the RALO Leaders if you have any questions with the application form.  Do not make your answers too long and complicated.  The panel members will not be worrying about spelling or grammatical errors.
